Bajaj Pulsar 220 F Latest Updates
Bajaj has launched the Pulsar 220F with a single-channel ABS. The new Pulsar 220F ABS commands a premium of Rs 7,600 over its non-ABS version.
Over the years, the Bajaj has kept the Pulsar 220 F fresh by giving it timely updates and recent updates include a BSIV-compliant engine, a matte black exhaust end can, striking new graphics, a belly pan and rim tapes. Additionally, the side panels and the semi-digital instrument console backlit in blue now feature faux carbon fibre texture.
The engine, on the other hand, hasn't been tinkered with. The Bajaj Pulsar 220 F retains the same 220cc, single-cylinder, air-and-oil cooled motor that pumps out 21PS and 18.55Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed transmission. It also comes equipped with an Evaporative Emission Control System (EVAP) that recycles vaporising fuel. The fuel tank is rated at 15 litres.
In terms of mechanicals, the Pulsar 220 F employs a dual cradle frame paired with conventional telescopic forks and a twin gas-charged suspension setup at the rear. Braking duties are handled by a 260mm disc brake up front and a 230mm disc at the rear. Its 17-inch alloy wheels come shod with 90-section front and 120-section rear tubeless tyres. It now gets a single-channel ABS as standard. The Bajaj Pulsar 220 F is priced at Rs 1.05 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune) and goes up against its age-old rival, the Hero Karizma ZMR (Rs 1.1 lakh) and the Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi, which is priced at Rs 93,032 (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi).

Bajaj Pulsar 220 F Highlights
It is fast, affordable and good value. But, dynamically, it clearly feels a generation old.
Design and Features
The Bajaj Pulsar 220F was a revolutionary motorcycle when it made its debut over a decade ago. Among the main reasons for its success was its stylish looks with the quarter-fairing giving it a sporty stance. And we have to admit that the Pulsar 220 has aged well and can still hold its own, even in the company of modern rivals. Talking about features, the Pulsar 220F gets a semi-digital console, backlit switches, projector headlamps and LED tail lamp (most of which were segment-first features at the time of its launch).
The engine is now compliant with BS-IV emission norms and the 220cc, single-cylinder, DTS-i motor delivers 21PS and 19Nm of peak torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The Pulsar motor isn’t the most refined unit in the segment but it does offer peppy performance. Braking is done by disc brake units on both the ends while ABS hasn’t been offered even as an optional extra. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and gas charged twin shock absorbers at the rear. The Pulsar 220 tips the scale at 150kg and has a 15-litre fuel tank.
Suzuki Gixxer SF: Although the Suzuki Gixxer SF can’t match the outright power of the Pulsar 220F, it outdoes the Pulsar in terms of handling dynamics and engine refinement. Also the Gixxer SF is easier to ride in city and is well damped too, but has been priced at a premium.
The Bajaj Pulsar 220F, despite its age, still remains a value for money motorcycle, given the performance and features it has on offer. The motor isn’t the most refined one out there, but will plaster a grin on your face with its grunt. All in all, it still remains an aspirational motorcycle for Indian buyers.
